Claudia Cazares (lead Instrutor) Hello UPCS Preschool Community,
I'm so excited to be a part of El Jardin de Niños again! My name is Claudia Cazares and I've been working in Camarillo since 2007. First, at El Jardin de Niños and currently I was working with Interface in the Neighborhoods for Learning Department and First Five Ventura County. I'm excited to be a part of your child's early development and share my knowledge with our families and staff. I enjoy my family to the fullest as much as I can. I also watch Netflix series, read books, and enjoy my garden at home with all my succulents and my citrus trees. I have a puppy and her name is Athena. I walk with her everyday around my neighborhood in the afternoon. I also walk every morning to help support my mindfulness and begin my day with a smile.

Sandra Shiguematsu, I am pleased to be your child’s Spanish teacher. I am native from Guadalajara, Mexico and I am very proud to share my language and my culture to your child. I graduated from Oxnard College with my Associates Degree in Child Development in 2007 and have been teaching since 2008. One of my favorite parts of being in the classroom is singing and dancing with the children. Having the opportunity to watch the children learn and grow is one of the best parts of my job.
